Nick Kygios announced his withdrawal from the 2024 Australian Open on OnlyFans which he joined a few days ago.
Nick Kyrgios who has been sidelined due to injury for the entire season of 2023 will extend his break to his home Grand Slam starting in early January. The news came after he narrowly missed to make it to the tournament’s entry list. But the Australian Open boss Craig Tiley hinted that he will be available in a different form.
Nick Kyrgios joined the controversial platform OnlyFans recently and he used that very app to announce his withdrawal from the Australian Open.
“I won’t be able to compete at the 2024 Australian Open. But even though I won’t be competing this year at the AO, I still would be around, commentating matches. I’ve got some special things planned, so please be excited.”-Nick Kyrgios in the video
It will be the second time that the Canberran will be in a commentary role. He first tried his hands at commenting in the recently concluded 2023 Nitto ATP Finals.
His best result in a Major came at the 2022 Wimbledon Open singles where he reached the finals and won the 2022 Australian Open doubles Titles alongside Thanasi Kokkinakis. After suffering from injury which led to his withdrawal from the 2023 Australian Open, he has played only one match in the entire year.
“Hey guys, Nick Kyrgios here, obviously had a really tough year with injury, had that knee surgery and came back a little too soon which set me back a little bit, obviously had some wrist issues. So this is a very dissapointing time for me but yeah I won’t be able to compete at the 2024 Australian Open. Obviously heartbreaking, I’ve had so many amazing memories there and I just want to really get back to playing at the top of my game and doing it right and I need a little more time.”– Nick Kyrgios in an interview
